Photo Flash: First Look at Theater Wit's Midwest Debut of 'SEVEN HOMELESS MAMMOTHS'

Theater Wit returns to the world of love and academia following last season's smash hit Completeness with Seven Homeless Mammoths Wander New England, an academic sex story by Madeleine George, one of the smartest, freshest woman voices in contemporary theater. Scroll down to see some exclusive photos from the production!

Theater Wit Artistic Director Jeremy Wechsler will direct, and Laura T. Fisher, Meighan Gerachis, Steve Herson, Kristen Magee, Susaan Jamshidi and Casey Searles will star in Theater Wit's Midwest premiere of Seven Homeless Mammoths.

Dean Wreen is having a difficult week. Her campus renovations are meeting stiff resistance from the town and her ex has returned to live with her. This complicates her relationship with Andromeda, her new (and much younger) girlfriend. Museums, romance, politics and yes, seven enormous mammoths collide in this academic sex comedy by one of America's most fun and original new playwrights.

Seven Homeless Mammoths is Rated M for mature content and language. This production features simulated sex between prehistoric college students and contemporary lesbians. No mammoths were harmed nor museum dioramas damaged in the making of this production.

Previews are now-March 16, Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m.; and Sunday at 3 p.m. Preview tickets are only $12-$18. Performances run through April 27, Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m; Sunday at 3 p.m. Regular performances are $20-$36. Run time is 2 hours 15 minutes with intermission. Theater Wit is located at 1229 W. Belmont Ave., Chicago, in the heart of Lakeview's new Belmont Theater District. For tickets and information, visit TheaterWit.org or call 773.975.8150.
